MONTROSE — Dolores School District Superintendent Mark MacHale was announced late Tuesday evening as the new superintendent for Montrose County School District RE-1J concluding a months long search and interview process.

“The school board was privileged to have three highly qualified finalists to consider for the position,” Montrose School Board President Kjersten Davis said in a district news release.
